    ISU Gets Some AP Votes and Texas #25 in BCS

    I see ISU got 3 votes in the AP and 1 in the coaches' poll. Gotta appreciate that love after defeating the #2 team in the BCS. Given our 6-4 record, I was going to treat that sarcasticallly with a but....

    Speaking of BCS, how in the he** does Texas rate a spot as #25 in the BCS at 6-4? This is pretty astounding, regardless of what teams they lost to.

    Re: ISU Gets Some AP Votes and Texas #25 in BCS

    I find it curious that Auburn who also has 4 loses is #24. They might have beaten 2 ranked opponents but their last 3 losses were not that close either.

    Re: ISU Gets Some AP Votes and Texas #25 in BCS

    Yeah this makes no sense. What if ISU beats oklahoma on sat? There is no reason they shouldnt be ranked after that. They would be 7-4 coming off back to back wins vs top 10 teams and 3 wins overall vs ranked teams. But how can you go from only 3 votes to ranked the next week? The voters probably ****ed ISU. They showed no respect for them after beating the #2 team in the country IMO

    The sad thing is that we might be the best team Texas has beaten. BYU, UCLA, Rice, Tech, and Kansas are their other victories.

    Re: ISU Gets Some AP Votes and Texas #25 in BCS

    They are in the top 25 due to the computer rankings, and strength of conference and schedule. Neither are in the 25 if the human polls. But who the Hell is NORIL?

    I've come to the conclusion that it is a lack of viable alternatives. Look at the others receiving votes. Who else would you put there (other than us of course )? There just aren't any other teams that would seem worthy. Tulsa? Northern Illinois? Southern Miss? All of those have 3 losses in lower conferences.

    There just seems to be an overall lack of top-end teams this year.

    Re: ISU Gets Some AP Votes and Texas #25 in BCS

    Perception is what gets Texas that ranking. It's happened with Nebraska big time this year as well. When you start in the top 10, it's easier to stay in the top 25 than it is to get into the top 25 when you are in the 50s to 60s.

    Also though, it is our own fault as well. Thank God that Missouri game wasn't on TV or it probably would have done as much damage as our win against OSU did good. But I guarantee you, that Missouri game is still on a lot of voters minds.

    Well, I don't think that ISU deserves to be in the top 25 (yet), so I would be fine with them getting zero votes. The only way you get a vote is by someone putting you in their top 25, it's not like someone votes you for the 33rd spot so you get a vote.

    I have to agree about Texas. What have they shown to be on that many voter's ballot?


    EDIT: I just read the list of unranked teams with less than 4 losses. Maybe ISU does belong!
